Rumour Watch 2018: DICE Prototyping a Battle Royale Mode for Battlefield V

MemesFortnite

In both "Fortnite" and "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" - more commonly known as "PUBG" - 100 online players are dropped onto island maps to fight to the death with weapons they find scattered throughout the map.

According to Venture Beat, the mode is now being prototyped to compete with the surge of popularity with the genre started by PlayerUnknown's Battleground and skyrocketed by Fortnite. Throw one more on the pile though, as DICE and EA are also considering a similar game mode in the next Battlefield game, now called Battlefield 5.

As of right now, nothing has been decided and with DICE currently testing out the mode to see if it can get it into action, it is entirely possible it may never see the light of day. Black Ops 4 is reportedly due for the mode, it's been a strong component of The Division 2 rumours, and a new report suggests the next Battlefield will soon follow suit.

Back in March, Venturebeat reported that the next Battlefield game would be titled Battlefield V and return to a World War II setting.

De Bruyne: This young Man City team destined for sustained success
City's club captain, who celebrated the win live on camera , spoke to Sky Sports in the aftermath of City being crowned champions. After 33 rounds of matches, Pep Guardiola-coached Man City have 87 points, while Man United have 71 points.

As much as Battlefield fans might not like the idea of DICE spending time developing for this incredibly popular genre, you can't necessarily blame it for at least trying.

I asked EA for a comment, and the publisher declined. If there's money to be made or a trend to be followed, EA won't be far behind.

For example, "Battlefield V" battle royale could arrive as part of a post-release content update, either delivered as a freebie for all players or contained within a paid expansion or season pass.

In fact, the source claims that EA could still cancel the prototype, keep it for the following Battlefield or next Star Wars: Battlefront sequel, or spin it off into its own game.
